Journey By Bus
I really like a journey by bus. A bus stand is a place where we see a variety of people belongs to different states and nationalities. People speak different languages because they belong to different human races. Bus stand is one of the busiest places. In bus stand, we can see the full day the inflow and outflow of buses. In bus stand, there are many buses that are overcrowded with people. Mostly People are packed in buses to its full capacity. In buses, we can see that people stuffed like lifeless commodities. In buses the situation and condition of ladies, old people are spiteful.
Last Sunday I went to the bus stand. I went with my aunt. She was going to Delhi on a bus journey. We reached the bus stand at 10:00 am. There was a great rush. There was long queue before the booking window. I stood in the queue. I waited for my turn. My turn came. I bought a ticket.
We sat on a bench in the waiting room. The scene at the bus stand was very lovely. Children were playing in the waiting hall. Some persons were reading books at bookstalls. Chholey and Bhaturey were in great demand. It was very cold. So we went to the tea stall. We took tea.
I bought a newspaper and started reading it. My aunt started knitting a sweater.A beggar came to me. He was dirty. He had no shoes on his feet. He was very old. He had a stick in one hand. He walked very slowly. My aunt gave him some coins. After ten minutes the bus arrived. I got a good seat for my aunt the seat was near the window. The bus started at 10:30 am I came out of the bus stand.
As soon as the bus arrives at bus stand passengers rushed to the bus. The queues of people starting broken. The scene at bus stand has totally changed after the arrival of the bus. Scramble increase among the people who want to alight for bus and those who board for a bus. Many times people get their pockets picked. Some children start crying when they are crushed under the feet of reckless passengers.
There are many people who reserve their seats for comforts. Buses start early in the morning. Many office goers wait for the bus early in the morning and rushed to catch the bus. With the advancement of the day rush also increase in the buses. Some passengers get bored to wait for a bus for a long time. So they busy in other types of activities. Some people get busy in reading newspapers and some are busy in discussing some political issues.
Some people sit in corners and indulge in gossips. There are some people who wait for long time for the buses feel hungry and thirsty and so they entertain themselves with refreshments and cold drinks at the nearest shops. Beggars also see the bus stand. They sing for beg and got benefits of such types of opportunities.
The scene at bus stand is very interesting. People belongings to different walks of life are seen there. They wait for buses for different places. The people start gathering at the bus stand from early morning. This process starts gathering at the bus stand from early morning. This process continues until late at night. There is a great rush at all hours. People stand in long queues in front of ticket windows or the conductors. When a particular bus arrives the passenger rush towards it. They push and jostle against one another in their struggle to get into the bus. Sometimes their clothes are torn and their pockets are picked. It is not an easy thing to board a bus comfortably. A bus stand is full of life and activity during the day. It presents a deserted and dismal look at night.
It is necessary that beggars should not permit to enter in the buses. Moreover, only those vendors are allowed to sell things on buses that are approved by health authorities. It is instruction for everyone if you found any suspicious object on the bus and it is a duty of every passenger to inform to the police as well as roadway authorities.Some buses in rainy season mostly are the victim of muddy water. Even some buses are not able to protect passengers from heat and rain. So government should provide all facilities to passengers for their comforts.
